MTHFR (Methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase) is an enzyme that converts the folate you eat into the active form that is then used by your body. This test determines if you have a mutation in this gene and therefore are not converting properly, affecting how much active folate you have available. Active folate is required for a huge range of functions in the body, so there are many signs and symptoms of folate deficiency. Please ask your practitioner for more information on this complex topic.
Other gene tests can include Factor V Leiden mutation, alpha thalassaemia, prothrombin gene mutation, haemochromatosis, whole chromosome tests (known as molecular karyotyping), coeliac disease HLA DQ2 and DQ8 genes.
Gene profile tests can include 23andMe DNA genetic testing, Cardiac DNA profile, myDNA as well as NeuroGenomic, ImmunoGenomic, EstroGenomic, DetoxiGenomic and CardioGenomic profile.
